There exist many ways in which you can increase your workplace’s efficiency. It could be through HR methods that create space for the employees to evolve and express themselves, or it can be through digital resources, such as aiding hardware and software. 

Here are two tips to help your workplace increase efficiency or hopefully get your creative flow going. 

Give and receive feedback 

Feedback is one of the simplest but most effective ways to increase your employees’ efficiency. The employees may not even realise they are being inefficient. In that case, the feedback lets them know what they excel at and what they need to change to become more efficient.

Additionally, it creates an open space where the employees can give feedback to the workplace, such as wanting a more quiet working environment by creating the possibility of working from home. That way, you will know what the company needs to change to create the best environment to improve employees’ efficiency. 

Therefore, you can, through feedback, increase employee satisfaction as you are listening to them and they feel heard. At the same time, you gain ideas on how you can improve the workplace’s efficiency overall. 

Take full advantage of technology

You can use technology to increase your workplace’s efficiency in many ways. It can, for instance, cut out the smaller tasks so staff can focus on higher-priority tasks and save time by creating structure. 

Two major examples of using smart technology to your advantage are the healthcare industry’s and libraries’ use of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. 

  • RFID healthcare: RFID technology can be used in healthcare to track and locate items to a room level through the different items’ tags that each has their unique ID. As such, nurses and doctors can find the nearest items for various medical procedures and assessments. This way, they, for example, avoid walking all over to find a scanner.

Therefore, using RFID technology in the healthcare industry can help nurses and doctors save time and increase equipment utilisation rates. 

  • RFID with books: RFID is used in libraries to improve efficiency by creating self-check-in and check-out equipment that makes the visitors borrow, renew and return the books. 

Having this self-check-in and-out equipment, libraries have more resources, as it minimises the staff’s energy and time spent on handling material. These resources can then be allocated for other tasks and increase the efficiency of the workplace. 

These are only a few tips you can use. However, many more ways exist to increase efficiency. Depending on your company, tasks and employees, you may need to explore more options to find the perfect solution for your workplace.
